When does the redness go away? I started antibiotics Tuesday and the red splotch has gotten bigger.It doesn't hurt as much.

Also..baby won't nurse on it! I've been pumping but only get a few drips. Is this bad? Idk what else to do!

 I have no idea..please don't be offended but this is one of the reasons why I didn't nurse..

If you're not getting any milk, you might have a blocked duct. Can you call your OB?

I'll bump for you...

I've had it several times. Very painful,I thought I was gonna jump out of my own skin, but you have to nurse on it to clear it up .I've never pumped,but I do know that pumping does not give a clear indication of what you are producing. Do not remember exactly when the redness cleared.
